This modular course provides an appropriate alternative to the traditional GCSE in ICT/Digital Technology. This course has an emphasis on learning by doing; students get the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in practical work related situations. They also get to develop an appreciation of the environmental impact of the tasks they carry out as well as raise their awareness of the health and safety issues relating to computers.
